Merkley to hold Multnomah and Columbia Town Halls

Town Halls are Saturday, June 5th and Sunday, June 6th at Portland and Vernonia, Oregon.


Portland, OR
– Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley will hold town halls in Multnomah and Columbia Counties during the first week of June.

He will update constituents on his work in Washington, DC and answer their questions and invite their suggestions about how to tackle the challenges facing Oregon and America.

“Advocating for Oregonians is my number one responsibility,” Merkley said. “I invite all residents of Multnomah and Columbia Counties to meet me and discuss what we need to do to get Oregon working again and strengthen America.”

In 2008, Merkley pledged to hold town halls in each of Oregon’s 36 counties every year. He upheld his pledge in 2009 and is quickly advancing it in 2010. Multnomah and Columbia Counties will be his twenty-sixth and twenty-seventh town halls of the year.
